General and Inorganic Chemistry with Laboratory code worth 9 credits and takes place in the first half of the 1st year of the three-year degree in Materials Science. Classes are held in Italian. For enrolled students, the teaching material is available on AulaWeb. To provide basic knowledge on: i the basic concepts of General Chemistry II the structure and properties of matter in relation to its composition and its state of aggregation, III the chemical balance and the main types of reactions and systems reagents. Lectures include classroom exercises conducted by the teacher, as well as practical sessions in laboratory.

Teacher Valerio Zanotti. Credits Language Italian. Insegnamenti online - IOL. Course Timetable from Sep 30, to Jan 15, Course Timetable from Sep 30, to Jan 13, Course Timetable from Oct 01, to Jan 14, At the end of the course the student possesses the basic knowledge of chemistry and the scientific method, learned via significant examples and quantitative applications of the natural laws and the interpretative models.
Moreover, the student gains the fundamental chemical principles concerning the atomic structure, the periodic table, the properties of the chemical elements, the chemical bond, the molecules and their geometries, the aggregation state of the matter.
The student will be able to understand a chemical reaction, the balance of matter and energy, the homogeneous and heterogeneous chemical equilibria, the spontaneity of chemical reactions and their kinetics, as well as the use of chemical energy in order to produce electrical work.
Moreover, students will gain an understanding and a knowledge of the fundamental concepts of stoichiometry and practical chemistry, via numerical exercises and laboratory sessions. They will acquire the skills necessary to work in a chemical laboratory and be able to correlate their experimental data with chemical reactivity. Knowledge of the elementary real functions: power functions, roots, exponential and logarithm.
Solving algebraic equations. Knowledge of the main physical quantities, their mutual relationships and main unit measurements. Azeotropes- Distillation- Colligative properties and their effect in daily life. General and inorganic Laboratory: Safety in the chemical laboratory. SI units of measurement. Uncertainty in measurements. Significant figures. Names and formulas of inorganic compounds. The mole. Percent composition of compounds. Empirical and molecular formulae.
Chemical equations and their balance. Oxidation numbers. Stoichiometric calculations based on chemical equations. Yields from chemical reactions. The limiting reactant concept. Chemical equilibrium in gas phase. Properties of solutions and their concentrations. Molar fraction. Heterogeneous equilibrium: solubility product. Ionic equilibrium. Autoionization of water. Acid and base solutions.
Ionization constants for weak monoprotic acids and bases. Acid-base titration curves. Electrochemistry: standard reduction potentials; voltaic and electrolytic cells; the Nernst equation.
Lectures integrated with exercises and laboratory activities. The course is divided in three phases. The first phase introduces the objectives of the course and gives a brief description of the nature of matter and its transformations with the aim to learn the chemical language and nomenclature.
The second phase presents the chemical phenomena and their quantitative handling with the help of numerical exercises. The third phase is devoted to the comprehension and interpretation of behaviour and phenomena, object of the second phase. For what concerns in specific the Laboratory activities, it consists of lectures and numerical exercises carried out in the classroom and practical activities in the chemical laboratory. Experiments will be documented by students individually in their own personal lab-books and the results will be discussed together.
A tutor will be available to help students in solving exercises and override encountered difficulties. Assessment of the learning outcomes is carried out by a written test and an oral exam. Examples of problems and questions similar to those of the final exam are provided. Access to oral exam is possible after passing the written test. Oral exam is aimed at evaluating the knowledge and abilities indicated among the learing objectives of the course.
The final mark is an average of the written and oral exam and takes into consideration both theoretical and laboratory competences in equal weight. The final written test can be replaced by three tests taken during the course one at about half of the program and the other at the end of the program.
The average score of the two tests provides the final written mark. Blackboard and PowerPoint presentations for lectures. Documents and slides shown are made available to students by AMS Campus web platform. Experimental activities are planned in teaching laboratories; a workplace provided with basic instruments and glassware to is assigned each student.
